Its funny because I started doing this getting up without hitting the snooze button and stuff like a month ago and....YES it really works..i get up at 5am and leave at 5 40, since i drive to school so its really nice beacuse this way i dont have to go speeding to get there on time and YES I also leave in a better mood!!

I wake up a little before seven and leave at 8.35(ish). I usually spend the first hour eating breakfast and having coffee and writing back e-mails. Then I spend only about half an hour actually washing my face, getting dressed, doing my hair, etc... :)

You have a wonderful writing style- I love it! And I've really been thinking about this a lot lately...on weekday mornings I have to get up at 5:50-ish so I can be on the bus to school by 6:50. But lately (this morning included!) I've been getting up a good ten minutes earlier at 5:40. It really, really does do wonders to even have an extra 10 minutes. xo

You're making me think about getting up earlier, I'm always rushed in the mornings. I get up, wash my face, get dressed, put on some make up, have breakfast, and brush my teeth in 20 minutes. Maybe I'd like to have some more time, but I love sleeping!

I don't wear make-up either, and I pick out my outfit and make my lunch and get everything ready the night before, so that all I need to do in the morning is get dressed, eat, brush my teeth, and do my hair. This comes in handy, seeing as I have zero period and have to leave for school at 6:10. So having everything done the night before allows me to get ready in the morning, waking up at 5:20!

I definitely find the earlier I wake up, the more alert I am when I need to be in class. I have all 8:00 AM classes in school, so this is definitely an inspiration to just get up and go!

a good tip is to pick out your outfit and everything the night before-saves me lots of time
